Wesley's Notes for Psalms 45:6


45:6 O God - It is evident, that the speech is still continued to the same person whom he calls king, ver.#1|,11, and here God, to assure us that he doth not speak of Solomon, but a far greater king, who is not only a man, but the mighty God, #Isa 9:6|. A right scepter - Thou rulest with exact righteousness and equity.


Discussion for Psalms 45:6

  • Rev. Autrey for verse 6
    (Verse 7) "Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. Your royal power is expressed in justice. You love what is right and hate what is wrong. Therefore God, Your God, has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else." The last half of this verse can te translated, "Therefore God, your God, has made you Christ," because anointed is translated Christ in the Greek.

    But notice that the one anointed as Christ is spoken of as God, as in "Your throne O God." This is God or Jesus talking about himself, as a direct reference to the way he spoke of himself in Isaiah 7:23 where he says of himself, "Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and he will be called Immanuel, meaning God is with us." And we know that when God was on earth he was called Christ.

    The Jewish leaders knew this. They knew that according to the Pslams the Christ was God. This is why they accused Jesus of blasphemy, he was making himself out to be God.

    God bless you!
